[Book] Health Booklet Staying Healthy in Italy

Staying Healthy in Italy

Sharing the Health Booklet Staying Healthy in Italy: How to better Use the Italian Healthcare System launched on 7th November 2014 by the Yuchengco Center, De La Salle University and Asia Europe Foundation at the Diamond Hotel Manila.

The Health Booklet is designed for Filipino migrants departing for and living in Italy. Its objectives are to:

• Raise awareness among Filipino migrants bound for and living in Italy on the Italian health system and services they are entitled to; and to

• Encourage Filipino migrants to utilise the health services in Italy, to intake prescribed drugs available in Italy—instead of purchasing medicines in bulk in the Philippines, and to obtain Italian language skills.

Also please find attached Policy Brief Policy BriefWays to Improve the Utilisation of Health Services and Intake of Prescribed Medicines by Filipino Migrants in Italy”.

This info materials could be used in integrated to PDOS (for Italy bound Filipinos) or orientation seminars in Italy.

[Book-ADB] Evaluation for Better Results


Evaluation for Better ResultsThis book or study has been shared on Innovation and Learning in a Changing Asia Conference Asian Development Bank (ADB) Headquarters Manila on 9-10 September.

The book offers a collection of papers from distinguished development practitioners and evaluators around the world who share their experiences in capacity development for evaluation at the country level. Evaluation for better results requires connecting with development challenges in a changing development context, focusing on and measuring outcomes, and proposing lessons and solutions to improve results. Tried and tested approaches may not be enough by themselves for dealing with unfamiliar situations as well as with past development problems that remain intractable. Innovative approaches are crucial in evaluation methods and outreach to enhance rigor and influence.

[Book-FWC] Guide for Filipinos in Italy

guideforfilipinomigrantsInternational migration is a global phenomenon that involves the movement of people from one country to another for various reasons. The majority of these migrants leave their countries of origin in order to find employment abroad to support their families. Currently, about eight million Filipino women and men, or 10% of the population, are working in different regions of the world. In 2006, there were 113,907 Filipino migrants legally recorded in Italy, and 70,694, or 62.1%, of these are women.

The Filipino community is one of the oldest migrant groups in Italy, and while there are existing governmental and non-governmental organizations that respond to their social and economic concerns, there is an urgent need for materials that consolidate basic information about remittances, the rights and responsibilities of foreign workers, access to social services, and other issues. These materials are designed to better facilitate the social and labour integration of migrants in the host country.

This booklet aims to provide Filipino migrant workers in Italy with concrete information about immigration laws, the sending channels and costs of remittances, available services that promote the migrant’s well being, such as medical care and education, and lists of governmental and non-governmental agencies, as well as community organizations that provide assistance to migrants.

[Book - FWC] Me, Us and Them: Realities and Illusions of Filipina Domestic Workers

meyouandthem

The idea of the research project originated from the community leaders of FWC as part of their desire to respond to the many urgent needs of Filipino women domestic workers in Rome.

The experiences of FWC for the past 13 years in counselling and advocacy work made them realize that these women are  faced with many complex social problems that lead to much sufferings. It was urgent for FWC, in its concern with the social and psychological effects of migration on the women domestic helpers in Italy and on the family left behind in the Philippines, to address the cultural, social and economic adjustment of Filipina migrant domestic workers.

This research project is an historic activity in the field of migration research on the Filipino migrant community, as well as in the field of advocacy for policy changes regarding migration. It documents and analyzes the hidden issues that have an impact on the conditions of Filipino women domestic workers.
